Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received a virtually flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. This is one of the few places to receive multiple A+ category grades. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home also excelled in our long-term care category. We gave it an A for that category. This topped off truly elite profile. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.21212 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
